Synchronica Wins German eco Internet Oscar 2007

Mobile Gateway 3.0 Awarded Best Mobile Service Product by Industry Experts

Royal Tunbridge Wells, 25 June, 2007. - Synchronica plc, an international provider of mobile synchronization and device management solutions, received the Mobile Service award at the eco Internet Awards 2007 in Cologne for Mobile Gateway 3.0. Synchronica was announced as the winner of the prestigious award for the best product in the Mobile Service category at the eco gala event in Cologne, Germany.

Synchronica, an expert in push email, beat off the fierce competition of more than 200 other applicants to convince a jury of press, analysts, IT and telecoms experts that the Mobile Gateway was the best mobile service product. Synchronica joins a high profile list of previous winners including Monster, the jobs portal, Xing and Siemens Business Services.
Every year the association of the German internet enterprises (eco) awards a prize to companies for an innovative and extraordinary product or service which brings a significant user benefit.
The award winning Mobile Gateway from Synchronica is an independent platform, based entirely on open industry standards. It allows push email and data synchronization with almost all mobile phones available on the market without the need to install an additional client on the device. After a simple online registration the synchronization of contact and calendar data as well as transmission of emails is immediately available.
Due to the full support of POP3 and IMAP, the consumer is able to use popular email services like MSN, AOL, Gmail or Yahoo. Businesses can employ the system to operate with mail servers like Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Domino and Sun JES.
'The internet has become increasingly mobile. Does this mean the internet will conquer the mobile world? We believe that Synchronica's Mobile Gateway has exactly that potential. We are sure that this will become an alternative to popular SMS text messages in Germany', said Dr. Bettina Horster, Head of M-Commerce task force for the eco association.
'We are delighted to have won the award for best mobile service in the eco Awards 2007. This encourages us in our effort to enable mobile email for the mass market,' comments Nicole Meissner, CMO of Synchronica. 'Push email will shortly expand to the prosumer and consumer markets. Virtually every mobile phone user has an email account, and most of them now have an email-enabled device. This is the most cost-effective alternative to the BlackBerry for the mass market.'
The eco Award is the fourth award that Synchronica's Mobile Gateway has received within six months. The other awards received have been the Golden Marcom Creative Award (AMCP), Seal of E-Excellence and most recently the Innovationspreis ITK from Initiative Mittelstand.
